KKE Architects have been working closely with the Newport hospice since 2005, when a new base was first sought for a day hospice and the administration of their large hospice-at-home network. Many different sites were evaluated until the City Council offered a wonderful opportunity to develop a hillside in Malpas with views of open country, yet which was easily accessible from Newport. Funded by a direct grant made to the charity by the Welsh Assembly Government, the project will be BREEAM rated ‘Very Good’. The new facility was completed and opened by the Rt Hon Carwyn Jones in Summer 2012.
